National American Beer Day!
National American Beer Day is observed annually by beer drinkers across the nation celebrated on October 27.
There are more than 2,100 breweries that manufacture beer in the U.S. They range in size from industry giants to brew pubs and microbreweries.
- The U.S. produced 196 million barrels of beer in the year of 2009.
- The U.S. consumes roughly 20 US gallons of beer per capita each year.
- In 2008, the United States was ranked 16th in the world in per capita consumption, while total consumption was 2nd only to China.
- Prohibition in the early 20th century caused nearly all American breweries to close.
- After prohibition was repealed the industry had consolidated into a small number of large-scale breweries.
- The majority of the new breweries in the U.S. are small breweries and brewpubs, who, as members of the Brewers Association, are termed “craft breweries” to differentiate them from the larger and older breweries.
- The most common style of beer produced by the big breweries is American lager.
- Most of the smaller breweries, which were founded in the 1980′s, produce a range of styles.
- Beer styles originating in the United States include:
American pale ale, Pennsylvania porter, American IPA, steam beer, amber ale, cream ale and Cascadian dark ale.
